MIEZARUTE (the invisible hand) is an artist unit formed in 2014 by Anglo-Japanese creative duo Adam Smith and Keiko Takahashi. Embracing nihilism and anarchism with humour and charm, MIEZARUTE’s DIY ethic takes in varied modes of expression, including mixed-media installation and performance.

The first solo exhibition by MIEZARUTE (the invisible hand).

The unique specialness of Japan as found in garbled Japanglish apartment names and t-shirt slogans, Japanese characters in Hollywood movies, the beauty of a closed-down pachinko parlour, and more, expressed through photography, video, and installation.

“Saying goodbye to the past us damn tough, but it’s vital if Japan wants to move forward to the future.”
- R. Cannon
